Belly Putters

Please Note: This article on choosing and fitting a belly putter grip is an archived page, written before the 2016 belly putter ban. Remember that anchoring a putter in your midriff is now illegal under the rules of golf... Otherwise, please enjoy the page!

Since the mid-2000s we've seen belly putters more and more frequently in the hands of the top pros. Vijay Singh, Paul Azinger and Colin Montgomerie were amongst the first to use them to help overcome lacklustre performances with their short putters.

      But 2011 was the year when the belly putter really hit the headlines. Relative newcomers on the pro scene Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson and Bill Haas dislodged some of the old guard using the belly putter to devastating effect and captured high profile titles along the way. Bradley's 2011 USPGA win was the first Major won with an anchored putter of any kind.

      These players are a new breed who hardly ever used the short putter and learned their craft with the belly. They're better with them than many others who use the short putter so well. Who knows, perhaps you'll be the next convert to have great results with this style of putting.
